I first dined at La Rotisserie as a child forty years ago, and still love it, and have been back dozens and dozens of times. I have always liked the unpretentious approach of this large restaurant, which can cater for around 600 people at any one time, though i have rarely seen it at full capacity. That said, the service is still very swift, friendly and professional, with multi lingual staff, who know what wining and dining is all about and deliver what the diner wants. Over the years subtle changes have been made to the menus to keep up with gastronomic trends. As with everywhere, the prices are not what they used to be, but the menu caters for all tastes and budgets, and offers good quality and quantity for the price. Several set price menus, ranging from budget to gourmet as well as la carte are available. Traditional croissant, pain chocolat, baguette, butter and jam and coffee breakfast is also recommended.


If The French language is not your strong point it is always worth carrying a French phrase book which will help you to understand the intricacies of the extensive menu, and wine list.

La Rotisserie generally closes for he winter period around the end of October, opening again for the new season around Easter time.

Recent changes in access to Le Mont St Michel, mean that the causeway is no longer open to vehicular traffic, other than emergency vehicles, public transport and residents, however, a huge parking area has been opened about five minutes walk south, south east, of La Rotisserie. I believe that vehicular access for disabled drivers/ passengers is still permitted to the hotels and restaurants on the land side of the causeway, via the gated access road, but be prepared with disabled permits etc, and inform the gate controller ( who likely only speaks French) which establishment you are heading for.

As we arrived late in the evening, we decided to choose this restaurant as it was right next to our hotel.
I guess we should have walk a little bit somewhere else.
We choosed one of the offered menus and were dissapointed. The soup was OK, but the the main dish was a tragedy.
I had a chicken with what supposed to be a mushroom sauce, but it probably never saw a mushroom at all.
Other dishes were about the same.
The prices for this kind of food were also hillarious but I think this is same for many other restaurants in the area.

Neverthless try to look somewhere else.

A nice bright restaurant with a pleasing decor. The food was very tasty and nicely presented. I had the rack of lamb, medium, which was excellent. I wasn't fussy about the accompanying potato fritters but probably most people would like them. Once I saw and tasted them I simply ordered a side of pomme frites which were great. My wife had an omelette and the warm goat cheese salad. She was delighted with them both. She said that the omelette was perfectly cooked...just firm on the outside and soft in the centre. We shared a meringue dessert which was outstanding. Everything was washed down with a very pleasant and inexpensive carafe of house rose. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. He also spoke better English than I do French.

This Resto is in a high tourist area so you should set your expectations accordingly. Suggest you stick to the 'Plat du Jour' (Dish of the Day) and you should be ok!

Since the place is very well visited, it sometimed takes a little longer to get your food, however the wait is worth it.
